Found Poetry, Altered Books.

I've been doing this for about twenty years. I open a book. Find an alternative story inside of it and then paint over unwanted words and dip it in wax.

Please convo me first if you are considering a purchase. These books are made of wax and are very delicate. I will need to look into shipping in dry ice, or something and would need to get a formal shipping quote for you.

This one is from an old Geography book I found.

The title is "Think"

Here's the Poem . . .

"all the dry land of our planet
think
try to answer the question
you belonged to the tribe"



This one still haunts me. I don't feel like I am writing these, but rather discovering a secret meaning, or deeper truth within the books.

The first few I made were exhibited at the Contemporary Art Museum in Houston, Texas.
Hope you enjoy ; )
